    Now that I've had time to reflect since my return I have mixed feelings about my trip with Oasis. On a positive note Africa is amazing and it's impossible not to fall in love with the wildlife, scenery and people. I took hundreds of pictures and will never forget all the amazing things I experienced. Now for the negatives... The truck was a 24 seater and for the majority of our trip we had 24 travelers. This unfortunately meant we were incredibly cramped which was worse during the 8 hour drives. We bumped into a lot of other tour companies along the way and noticed that Intrepid, Acacia and Gecko ensure that there are two seats per traveller. Another negative point was our tour leader. She wasn't very organised and didn't seem to know much about the trip route and places we were visiting. As a group we would often have to refer to the guide books we brought with us to learn more about the culture and local attractions of the places we were visiting. We also lost 6 members of our group at various points along the route who were disgruntled with the organisation of the tour and decided to complete their trip without Oasis. Overall I won't be booking with Oasis again, though anyone wanting to do this route should definitely consider it.

    Three months on and thinking about my time with everyone, with our truck, going around Africa still makes me smile. I didn't know what to expect, and read every blog I could lay my hands on to try and work it out but nothing I read online could prepare me for a trip like this. Because it isn't about itineraries, all the companies are so similar. It's about the ethos of the organisation, the staff they employ and the travellers they attract. Oasis is budget, and so you get the most chilled out people who love every aspect of 'getting your hands dirty' travelling. Which are my kind of people. The truck was awesome - it has such a unique and clever layout, the beach was my favourite bit - riding through Africa with my head out the roof drinking it all in. The crew were phenomenal, they got it all done but had fun and became real, actual friends with the group just like anyone else. I couldn't complain about a single thing in the itinerary, in the running, planning, pre-depature information, support from HQ - it was all top-notch for an amazing price. Lots of people see 'drive days' as a total drag on a trip like this but actually I loved them, the truck is laid out so you can chat to each other, have a dance party or just stick your head out of the sides/top for hours, and it's looking out the window that you see the real Africa. So I guess that's the most special thing about Oasis (though it is really hard to pick), that with them you really can get the most out of every day, not just the ones in somewhere already amazing like the Serengeti, Victoria Falls or the Gorilla Treks. I miss it so much, my only complaint is that it's over!

    Couldn't have asked for a better overall experience. Our crew were fantastic and really helped us to see Africa in a way that would have been difficult on our own. Travelling on the truck meant we had access to places that aren't on the map and got to stop in the beautiful middle-of-nowhere spots. Loved the meals round the campfire (not so great when you're on cook group but hey, it has to be done!). The majority of campsites were great and we really got to experience a lot thanks to all the optional activities on offer. Overall I absolutely loved my time with Oasis and I will be coming back for more! :)

    Oasis Overland isn’t a household name in Australia and you only tend to hear about Oasis from people that have travelled with them before. Each and every person who has travelled with them absolutely loves them! I was referred to Oasis by my soon to be sister in law who did the coast to coast overland a few years ago and raved about it. My now fiancé (I proposed on the trip… sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Serengeti!!) and I planned our trip two years prior and made some big sacrifices to make travelling for 3 months possible. So as you can image we had massive expectations. Expectations I didn’t think any company could ever meet. Oasis not only met my expectations, they blew them away! From the very first correspondence to the end of the trip and beyond everyone involved within Oasis were amazing. As I was planning to propose to my girlfriend on the trip I emailed Oasis prior to my trip to discuss ideas/locations for the proposal. I was amazed by the amount of help I received. Not only help but genuine interest and excitement in my situation. You won’t find that service anywhere else. Once the trip started Malcolm (tour leader at the time) pulled me aside to discuss some ideas further. The entire crews help was beyond what I could have ever asked and made my dream proposal possible. I can’t thank them enough. We were lucky enough to have 4 crew members at different points of the trip who were all fantastic. The majority of the trip was with Grace as tour leader and Malcolm as TRUCK driver after Iain left in Zimbabwe to start his silk road adventure. I not only regard the crew as great people who are fantastic at their jobs but also as close friends who enjoyed the trip as much as anyone. Oasis crew are everyday down to earth people who have all done the trips as passengers so they know firsthand what passengers want from an overland tour. They too just want to have a good time and enjoy the trip just as much as you or I. It's the simple things the crew does every day that make the trip unforgettable. Things like ‘The Game Of Life’, ‘3 Second Rule’, ‘Truck Olympics’, ‘Assassin’. It’s these simple things that create memories of a lifetime. If you’re looking for the adventure of your life and reading this you are on the right track. If your wondering if Africa is the right destination... don't! It's the most amazing Continent on earth! You just have to do the trip to find out why as it just can't be explained. There is something about Africa... when she grabs hold.. she never lets go! Book an Oasis trip… It will be the best decision you’ll ever make!!!

    Questions & Answers

    Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

      • January 1, 2017

        What are the type of accommodations?

        This is a mainly camping based trip, where we provide the tents, which are three person dome tents that just two people of the same gender share, or of course if you are travelling with another person then you would be sharing with them. You would need to bring your own sleeping bag and mat for this trip. There are also a few nights on this trip where you will not be camping, for instance in Rwanda there is a night in a hostel dorm room, while on Zanzibar you will have 3 nights in a bungalow on a beach and one night in a hostel in Stone Town. Likewise in Namibia you would stay a couple of nights in a dorm room, and then in Cape Town you again will stay in a dorm room for the night before the trip finishes

      • November 1, 2016

        We would like to have this trip with our kids, can a 14 year old kid join this trip?

        Oasis Overland have overland trips with monthly departures, like the tour you have selected and these trips are for travellers of 18 years and above.

        However, family overland trips have limited departures throughout the year which would be perfect for you and your family.

      • November 1, 2016

        Is it possible to have my own tent, and not share with others?

        These trips do not have a single supplement factored into the pricing and the trips are based on sharing a tent with a traveller of the same sex. If the trip is not full and there are spare tents then it may be possible.
